Highly recommended!

Perfect school trip for School children. We had a fantastic time and learnt a lot about the rainforest animals, plants and their adaptation to their habitat. Highly recommended! From TripAdvisor

Love it here

We have visited several times and find it a fascinating place to visit. There's lots to see and do, especially for children. I particularly love the sloth. Was great watching her at feed time interacting with her patient team worker. Great to see the snakes and the learning session for kids is brilliant. From TripAdvisor

Great value

I came here with my daughter and grandchildren during the school summer holidays. Totally enjoyed our day, and came back again. It's fab that when you buy a ticket, it's valid for a whole year so can come back numerous times. The grandchildren were in awe of the sloth!!! Will definitely go back again, and again!!!

Good learning place for young children

Went with granddaughter, she loved it. There was a lot to see and do. There are quiz, colouring, dot to dot, find plants and animals and other pages of fun for the kids to do. As you walk around the massive greenhouses seeing lots of different types of plants and trees, you come across birds and animals, some in tanks and glass enclosures, some are wandering around with the visitors. There are frogs, lizard, snakes, fish and more. From TripAdvisor
